That portrait was done by artist Ivan Winberg, but I'm not sure on the year.  Maybe someone else knows, though.

1843.

Alexandra Nikolaevna.  I posted this image awhile ago, but here it is larger and in much better quality.

I have seen this!  It's fabulous!  My favorite scene is of Alexandra dancing with her husband-to-be :)

Illustration from a German newspaper.  It is Nicholas I and Alexandra Feodorovna mourning their youngest daughter, Alexandra Nikolaevna, but the best part is, the portrait in the background is Adini in her wedding gown! :D

Agree totally with you Dru, I've never seen any other portrait depicting her in her bridal dress!! Sadly it's a bit small for my liking :-( but I tried to enlarge it a bit more, I'm not totally satisfied with what I got but I expect it can be at least a bit useful. And thank you very much for sharing this jewel dear Dru!! :-D

You did a better job enlarging it than I could have done, Yelena.  If I'm ever lucky enough to find a better image, I will be sure to post it :)

Variation of the Briullov portrait...



... and here is a well-known portrait by Hau.  The quality is poor, but this is what it looks like in color.
